Judge Throws Out Case To Remove World Trade Center Cross


From Breitbart:

A U.S. District judge has thrown out a lawsuit, brought by an atheist group that hoped to prevent the display of a cross-shaped steel beam found in the rubble at the site of the World Trade Center.

The Associated Press reports that Judge Deborah Batts, in a ruling released on Friday, rejected the arguments of American Atheists, saying that the artifact could help tell the story of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The atheists’ organization sued the National September 11 Memorial & Museum’s operators in 2011 on constitutional grounds, arguing that the display of the 17-foot-tall cross constitutes an endorsement of Christianity and thus lessens the contributions of non-Christian rescuers.
